Emilia Romagna Castles

Castello di Formigine

The Castle is the symbol of the Formigine community and the main place of the collective memory. Visitors can find a tourist information point with a bookshop, where it is possible to receive informations about the castle and the surrounding district.

The ground floor of the Stately Home houses a restaurant and a wine shop, where you can taste excellent local food and wine.

On the first floor there are the Council Chamber and the Wedding Room. It is possible to rent the prestigious halls of the castle for meetings, conventions and events.

Due to its central position, the Castle is an important cultural center of the city, which hosts various musical and theatrical events, meetings with authors, guided tours and historical commemorations.

The fortress also houses the Castle’s archaelogical Museum which explains the historical and archeological research through multimedia installations realised by Studio Azzurro, an art research center based in Milan.

Surrounded by the castle walls, the inner park is an oasis in the historic town center.
